Merrick Garland

During Monday's edition of NewsOne Now, Roland Martin and his panel of guests discussed Mr. Obama's interesting comments and whether his remarks explain why he did not select a Black woman to sit on the highest court in the land.

Most Democrats (80 percent) back Garland, while 45 percent of the overall public have a positive outlook about his nomination.

Martin, who has been adamant about President Obama nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court, asked Jarrett why a Black woman was not nominated and reminded Jarrett of the support Mr. Obama has received from African-American women over the course of his tenure as president.
